BEYOND BELIEF

 

 

pardon for not clotting

devolving the nitty witty

marbled facts, agates

(for the ecologically sensitive)

with salmon decks seething, writhing details

squeezed into columns

food for politicians, turkeys on silver platters

 

what cannot be told

is

remembered

 

don't remember?

don't think

now we share the same backyard

which is nowhere

yet everywhere

wonderful, no?

 

insects, birds, squirrels and snails

seeds in the ground

even newspapers and horses

does it matter if they are believed?
